. i love the way sarah palin is unbelievably delicious at this. she talks about and those death panels are in there. i love the way she says the death panels are in there somewhere. like they're creeping around inside. >> i mean, sam very rightly and logically said these people should stop because the president said, repeated today, and reminded them that he's going to be in office. he can veto anything. so they ought to calm down. but the fact is when you watch a few of those clips and when you talk to people in the movement and when you cover some of these groups and so forth, you realize that there's something else going on here. it isn't just a piece of legislation with these people. it's a kind of crusade against some deeply evil force. it almost harkens back to the days when people were worried about communist infiltration and there were people from abroad that were going to control every aspect of your life. in the clips they used words like killing and death. and they used the words of war and life and death because that's how they keep themselves going in this thing. they can'

in the this ral of rush limbaugh and sarah palin. >> and the same media style at the center. at the risk of making another, brian, sort of inappropriate analogy, it does in a way feel like this bill crystal media tour where he's saying there is this secret paul ryan plan that's going to solve health care better than the affordable care act. does feel a little bit like nixon's secret plan to get out of vietnam, right? there is -- there doesn't seem to be any actual substance to the plan, or am i wrong? >> i might eat my words for saying this. my hunch is we're not going to see a scorable piece of legislation come out of the republican party. but that doesn't mean that, you know, you can't kind of ascertain what paul ryan and, you know, the sort of mainstream of the house republican caucus believes about what should replace obama care if it were to ever be replaced. >> what is that? please help us. >> there's no consensus plan. and so even, you know -- there's -- there can't be a vote on a replace. there can only be a vote on a repeal. but, you know, from his old road map, which became the sort of b

feat? >> he has resigned from msnbc. this is several weeks after he had made comments about sarah palin that many people thought were outright disgusting, that were indefensible. in fact, i can't repeat them on the air. even though he was clever in the way he said it, he was talking about inappropriate behavior about sarah palin. he went away on vacation for a while. he said he took the thanksgiving holiday off, came back, met with the president of msnbc and decided he it to tender his resignation. i'm sure he was under pressure to do so, however, because his comments had become such a distraction, not just for him, but all of msnbc. >> quickly, a reminder, we were talking just this week about alec baldwin first, and now martin bashir. >> that's right. once alec baldwin quit for very different reasons from his show on msnbc last week, people wondered is martin bashir going to leave as well. well, he is. msnbc put out a kind statement, suggesting he wasn't forced out, although it was very uncomfortable there for several weeks because of his remarks. >> brian, thank you very much. a quick
